Dark indie thriller with a lot of philosophical food for thought.
Verified purchase
Not for everyone, but I absolutely loved it. Dark and layered, but with comedic undertones. If you enjoy indie films that aim at being thought provoking and don’t need large budget action scenes, this is for you. Oscar’s character was outstanding as was his witty execution of the dialogue. Excellent writing there, with a lot to chew on. I may have a tendency to find more dark comedy than is intended, but I found his character, although a complete sociopath, to be hilarious. Both leads work well together, and I’m sure the previous projects they’ve worked on together helped to establish that fluidity.

Solid flick, don't be fooled by the 3 star and below reviews

Saw the low reviews but took a chance and I'm glad I did. Definitely a slow burn movie. 90 minute movie felt like two hours but in a good way. With just the main leads I would've given it 4 stars but the supporting actors, mainly Mark Wahlberg and Walton Goggins own their roles and bring some much needed humor to a very serious movie. Both Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund are in top form and loved that they weren't the standard protagonist and antagonist, more like two wolves going at it. Highly recommended.

Interesting Movie
Verified purchase
I didn't know what to expect going into this movie, but I have to say, I was not expecting to be this impressed. The story is unique and keeps you interested. The acting is what really drives things. I had only seen Garrett Hedlund in Tron in which he played a pretty safe role. Here, you get to see him step into a more character driven role and display his acting skills. His serious acting was impressive. And, of course, Oscar Isaac is also a good actor and interesting to watch on screen. Overall good movie that will keep you guessing to the end.

Worth the Wait if You've Been Waiting Since Tribeca
Verified purchase
If you go into this movie with expectations based off of the trailers, as I did, you will find yourself surprised by the tone of the movie. While the trailers make this appear like a contemporary, dark thriller, this movie looks back to thrillers of earlier decades. The dialogue is light, but the acting carries depth. The score, to my novice ear, hearkens back to Hitchcock.

Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac both deliver an excellent performance. They play well off of each other and tell a story of ambiguity, not in the sense that what the characters do is ambiguous - they are both clearly in the wrong for different reasons - but in the sense that viewers can suspend their judgment as they observe the action.

With all of the negative reviews I've seen on here, I was expecting something "2edgy4me" but I ended up with a pleasant surprise. This movie was well worth the wait after about a year since its presentation at Tribeca.

good acting, apparently
Verified purchase
good acting, apparently, the writer has a message to the world, but the scripts sounds too profound to come out of the characters' mouth and mind, hence, the movie seems to be not convincing. I give it four stars for the acting (both Hedlund and Issac) , editing and cinematography.

if you clicked on this movie as a Mark Wahlberg fan, don't waste your time. he has a very small role that basically consist of him using the F word constantly. if Oscars character said "brother" one more time, I would have screamed!!

BROTHER!
Verified purchase
I added an extra star because I'm a devoted fan of Hedlund but the movie was okay. I'm happy it was available through Prime because then I'd feel stingy about a $1.99 or 2.99 rental. I laughed whenever Jack would talk because it felt like I was high watching MACHO MAN Randy Savage's cousin trying to kill Garrett Hedlund.
JES-US.
